First

So, this being my first blog, I figure I will introduce myself.
 
My name is Dustin. I commonly go by Frickincarl or Megalamoniacal online. You probably know me as that guy who was playing like shit on your team all day or that guy who wouldn't stop owning you from the other side. It just seems to work that way, very few like me in-game.
 
I'm originally from Ohio but, right now, I'm living in Pittsburgh as a student at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. As you can assume, we play lots of video games to pass the time. It's sort of our thing here. I'm enrolled in the Graphic Design program, though. I haven't been convinced yet that Game Design is right for me nor that it is the right career path for me. But who knows? Maybe Graphic Design isn't the right path for me neither. I guess that's the path we take.
I've been playing games my whole life. I'm 21 years old today and I've been playing them since I was at least 6, maybe earlier. If you see my "about me", you will find out that my earliest memory with video games was beating Super Mario Bros at age 6. That was a really fond memory of mine and a very pivotal moment in my life. I've been hooked on games and technology ever since.
 
Currently I've been enjoying some Team Fortress 2 and Champions Online with my small group of friends from Ohio. You can catch me very often on Steam (Frickincarl) and sometimes, but not always, on Xbox Live (Megalamoniacal). I used to play WoW, but it became boring to me after 5 years of play and my friends really ruined it for me. Don't ever let your girlfriend play with your circle of friends, COME ON!
Anyway, I'm gonna end this short. It's 5am where I live and I'm out of it. I will be sure to post more and hopefully meet more people.
In the mean time, send me a message or something.
 
Yeah, friggin'
CARL OUT!

Welcome to Giantbomb ;) 
Great 1st post. Usually it's only a sentence or something- it's because of those damn quests ;)

Welcome to the site. I liked your first post, it was fleshed out but concise, nothing like the "LOL FORUM POST" we sometimes get. Make sure to check the forum rules and happy birthday.

I applaud your blog post that actually has a blog in there. 
 
Veeelcome. ^_-

Your blog post doesn't have enough gigantic walls of self-important text nor enough random links to crap strewn throughout the paragraphs.

Who here thought by the title of this thread that it was a quest spammer making 20 one-word blogs? I did and I feel like an asshole for doing so.

well welcome :) 
 
i am honestly happy that you actually wrote/ typed something instead of typing a sentence. usually new people makes blogs for the quest and just type a sentence like "hey i'm new here" and the end of the blog. 
 
just to tell the people that you don't have to attach the blog to the forums. if it is something interesting then post it but if not don't post it on the forums.

Welcome. Now if I may I will start by directing you here and here in an ill diguised attempt to scare you away forever.

Thanks for the enthusiasm. I guess you may be speaking of your own grief, but I plan on posting and staying active. Hope to make something of this, unlike the supposed "Majority" of newcomers.
